What you need to know about parasitic relationships


What do we already know about parasites?

Let’s start with physical parasites. They are very small organisms that live in or on a much larger being (the host) and they benefit by gaining food and what they need to survive at the expense of the host.

In the human experience, parasites are mostly known for creating havoc and dysfunction in our digestive systems. Once they are firmly entrenched within us, they take our energy and erode our physical and personal power.

There is no coincidence that our digestive processes are aligned with our third chakra, the solar plexus chakra, which is often called our power centre.

Moving onto energetic parasites

The energy of parasites isn’t just restricted to our physicality. Parasitic energy can also be present within our relationships – with family members, friends, work colleagues and acquaintances.

Energetic parasites work in the same way as the parasites that weaken our physical bodies. They benefit by reducing and depleting the personal power of the host being they are feeding off.

Like physical parasites, they influence our digestion – our mental and spiritual “digestion.” They do this through (yes, you guessed it!) our solar plexus chakras – our power centres. This is where we digest thoughts, concepts, ideas and make sense of the world around us and our relationships with others.

How do you know you are in a parasitic relationship?

In a parasitic relationship, positive energy only flows in one direction, where one party is giving the energy and receiving nothing positive in return.

Do you have a relationship where your energy is being drained by another person? One of the easiest ways of knowing if you are in a parasitic relationship is by asking yourself if the relationship is based on fair exchange. Relationships based on a fair energetic exchange are not parasitic.
